Default.prop, you could edit with root explorer but you lose it when you reboot.

Thanks lenny, I asked on the HD2 forum and someone gave me instructions for setting ro.secure=1 in the kernel I used.

I have done so and installed in my ROM.

I am now watching Aerobics OZ Style at my desk at work.

Must say the picture quality is excellent..

Here's the link to the post that showed me how to decompile and recompile the Kernel.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...86&postcount=4

To get the Kernel boot into CWM (or whatever recovery you use) and mount the /boot partition.

Connect via adb and pull the initrd.gz file.

Decompile it (using nix or cygwin) as per the instructions.

Edit the default.prop and set ro.secure=1

Recompile it and push it back to the /boot partition via adb

As Alexander would say 'seemples'

@badboy365 I am using tytung's R14 Kernel but I think the above method will work with any kernel you use.

Still need to use Voodoo RootKeeper to hide root when using the SkyGo app though..

But to be honest it shouldn't matter, editing the kennel fir your current ROM should work too

Do you think theres any chance this could work on other HTC phones, such as the Desire?

The method will work, whether the method will let SkyGo app work is another question?

Try it and see.

What you need to remember is sky have been very good with their protection in this app blocking lots of different things.

So far we know of checks for:
- device and os (work around use the test apks in this thread)
- ro.secure=1 in kernel (work around use stock kernel or modifiy a custom kernel)
- root (work around use ota root keeper app or if this doesn't work use root hider, or an unrooted rom.

Sky are checking for more than just these things, we just need to work out what and how to fix them too (until we can fix the app to stop checking for all the above).

There also seems to be checks for a cell signal so most wifi only tablets will not work.

Also cm9 seems to completely fail on all devices,not sure why maybe it is missing something as is only beta builds so far. On a more positive note BBC I player also doesn't work on cm9 so if we can fix this chances are sky will work too.
